Hayward makes 1.045 million pounds ($1.6 million) a year as the company's head, according to its annual report. In 2009, he received a performance bonus of more than 2 million pounds plus other remuneration, bringing his total pay package to over 4 million pounds.
Going, going, gone in October. But he is not going to starve or have to sell his yacht.
That's for consumption over there to take the heat off Bob Pudley... whereas you lot think he's gone he's actually still retained and given his dream job in Russia. That's right, Hayward was allowed to name his terms as a reward for years of service and putting the Senate in its place when dealing with those insipid questions a few weeks ago.
Then my suggestion would be to not seem to take it so personally. There is nothing wrong with the fact that BP was known as British Petroleum for such a long time. You pointed out many times that Exxon and Union Carbide were American companies. While not being proud of everything those companies have done I don't take it personally just because I happen to be an American.
We're all on this planet together and national pride is fine when it does not start wars or cause other problems. A tragedy is a tragedy no matter who owns it. Repair the damage, find out what happened and fix it so it doesn't happen again makes sense to me. There will be plenty of vilification and drama in the courtrooms for years to come. Not much we can do about that.

If you follow the threads, KM is only noting that the company is BP, not British Petroleum. He has never said a jingoistic nationalistic flag waving anything. His sticking to the those precepts seem to give some people hives but he hasn't wavered. He is pointing out that Obama and others have non-factually called BP, British Petroleum. There is anti-Brtitish sentiment about and he is expressing his opinion about that sentiment.
Maybe because my mother was born in London and I am half British but the likes of these threads that refuse to not "push the button" and keep on with the "British" British Petroleum is more than annoying. To have it come from Americans who suck at the oil teat until they are blue in the face is comical.
Poly is right - I don't know which of my posts you had in mind on taking it personally but that's obviously not the case. I'm not even sure why you would think that when my point has been that BP is no longer British. No, hypocritical and misleading accounts of such events deserve to be exposed for what they are. Maybe no one wants to talk about the other players but when it gets to court they're going to have to face the music. And notwithstanding that we're all on the planet together I've noticed that everyone runs a mile from any discussion about Bhopal or the Niger Delta. It was strange I thought after the passes were printed for Warren Anderson that no one seemed to have a record of where to find them for Tony Hayward.
